Grand Bohemian Hotel – 15 Floors – 254 Rooms – Boutique Hotel

Recommended Posts


Curious to why the orientation of that ‘L’ shape of the building is that way. You would think they would have wanted that open space fronting Trade and Church for the views. As it’s set up currently pretty hemed in.

Agree my opinion has been elevated by these, but for me this will entirely come down to the materials used.

If it is a pool, it will get a lot more sun with its current orientation. Agree views would be better the other way, but street noise will be blocked this orientation.

Anyone know what will happen to the sculpture? Relocated? Sold for scrap metal?

Will still be there. The sculpture is on the carillons property. I’m sure they are taking it down precautionarily

They’re taking it down because it is being moved and the centerpiece of a new plaza here

If I had to throw my hat in the ring here, I would say it's probably to keep the Trade Street frontage more inviting with retail or restaurants rather than a busy pick up and drop off area. And on a traffic note, putting the car entrance on Church forces right turns only to enter and exit, making for much better traffic flow, Imagine someone trying to make a left onto Trade during rush hour. Maybe putting too much thought into it, but I would rather see the drop off area on Church, if anything it will bring some activity to an otherwise dead block.

I believe the sculpture in the pocket park came down today to make way for construction 

Yes, they spent Wed through Friday taking it down.  It was fun to watch!

Honestly, this design for that green space will make it much more inviting than the current configuration. I feel like more people will actually use it. The only downside is that it's not going to get  much  direct light due to the buildings around it.

I would have preferred for this to be developed on the parking lot next door or on the site of one of the many parking lots and garages nearby.

It looks like that lack of direct sun is going to result in this area being synthetic turf...

Didn't see this posted anywhere, but Charlotte Observer reported last Thursday that Grand Bohemian breaking ground next month per the developer.

Yeah I forgot to post that here. So the site work is underway and staging. They'll do an official ground breaking next month and HOPEFULLY wrap up late 2019
